A range of qualifications are on offer in this school to suit different abilities and learning styles, including Edexcel GCSE English / Literature and Pearson Functional Skills Level 1 and 2.

Class sizes will be no more than 8 students and you will be supported by a couple of Learning Assistants who will either be working 1:1 with individuals who are struggling with behavioural challenges or supporting small groups within the classroom. You will need to be able to work collaboratively with the support staff in the school.
